they could actually make a difference with the ballot. >> the united states needs to say to the world we have to solve the problem of our continuing confrontation with the muslim world it has undermined the success of president after president. and we cannot continue that way. we have to find a way to overcome that barrier and therefore israel has to see itself in the context of the whole western alliance. >> rose: friedman, rogan, cohen next. >> funding for charlie rose has been provided by the following. >> each day a billion people won't find safe drinking water. around the world we're helping communitites to access clean water. working to improve lives through conservation and education. one drop at a time. >> additional funding for charlie rose was also provided by these funders. . >> and by bloomberg, a provider of multimedia news and information services worldwide captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> this was a big week in diplomacy for president oa. last night he returned from a week long visit to asia it took him to j
service is enshrined in the constitution of the united states. we have a law that says the postal service should produce universal service. we have to maintain a basic service. host: joseph, independent caller. caller: one of the previous callers mentioned at the topic -- the vending machines. i look forward to going to the post office now with dread. one local post office has a giant hole in the wall covered with plywood where the vending machines used to be. when i asked one of the minister why they were gone. she said it was cost control. there's no way it can be more efficient to have all those people waiting in line. it makes no sense to me. there's something seriously wrong with the reasoning behind this kind of decision. i have seen it across the board. they're using space in the post offices for selling packages that have teddy bears and balloons on them. they should be sticking to basics, common-sense service. if i can avoid going to the post office, i will do it. they might as well -- it is just a nightmare. it is a baffling ordeal. guest: i am sorry to your use say that. you ar
and these companies can be located in the united states, europe, japan. anywhere. you got to look at it company by company to try to latch on to some of this growth we're seeing coming out of asia. >> let me talk specifically about the united states right now. the market has soared about 60% since march which was really the bottom, of course. now hitting 13 month highs this week alone. do you think there's still room to go up? if i wanted to enter this market, put new capital to work right now is that worthwhile or have i missed. >> no, you haven't missed it at all. what people don't realize is just how much the market fell in point terms. between october 9th, 2007, and march 9th of 2009, the s&p 500 fell by 888 points. we still regained less than half of those points lost. so there's still more money on the table than we've gotten back so far. so i know people would have liked to have gotten in march, but even if they didn't, there's still opportunity for good gains in stocks in the united states over the next few years. >> what about the large sort of structural issues the u.s. is facing righ
of denmark, the president of the united states, and some discussions with the chinese president, we have the capacity to lead an agreement at copenhagen. one which deals with the corps policy challenges for the future. namely, what temperature increase are we prepared to sustain in the future? what targets do we need from the major developed economies around the world? what commitment to action do we needrom the major emerging economies like china and india? how do we found this agreement? what kind of climate change process to put in place? if we can land and an outcome of those areas, we will have made a large step forward. and then translating that into legalese will take longer. >> talking about a long by the agreement is not possible? >> will we are talking about is what i would describe as an operational framework agreement. what president obama said the other day, one which would take immediate effect. there's a separation between what is said in a policy agreement, and the difficulty and complexity of translating that into a 4000 page binding legal document. you cannot get to the
and that lyndon johnson was president of the united states. my secret service manual tells me to protect the president of the united states and that was lyndon johnson. you stay with kennedy and i'm going to johnson. so he goes and -- his the first person to give a report to lyndon johnson. robert made up his mind that kennedy is dead but when he sees johnson that isn't what he says. what he says to johnson he says i have seen the president's wounds and i don't think he can survive. and johnson says i need more information. i want to hear from kennedy o'donnell who was appointed secretary in fact the sort of chief of staff for the kennedy white house. and he wants to hear from president kennedy's secret service agent. so emory roberts leaves the room and as he leaves the room he runs into who had arrived at hospital late and didn't see anything that happened and he says to roberts have you seen what is the president's condition and he says very matter-of-factly the president is dead and leader roberts told him johnson didn't know what i knew just kennedy was dead. the next person that co
.s. secretary of state, secretary of war, and finally, to term president of the united states, the fifth president. as governor of virginia he became the second most powerful figure in america. virginia then was america's largest, wealthiest and heavily populated state with 20% of the american population. it stretched all the way to the mississippi river and all the way north to the great lakes. it was enormous and the prestige and its importance of the governor was akin to the governors of california, illinois, new york and texas put together. and monroe was not only governor of america's most important state, he was a national hero in the revolutionary war. in other words he was a giant in his day and i don't understand why historians ignore him which is why i wrote this book to restore him to his rightful place in american history as the most important president in the early days of the nation. now some historians elevate john adams to historical prominence and most historians deify thomas jefferson and james madison and these were three great founding fathers and great political phil

these are men who are either legal residents of the united states or in some cases citizens of the united states. and the reason why the f.b.i. became so concerned is it was... it seemed to be a much broader attempt at attempting to radicalize people in the united states than they've really seen before. >> warner: how did the justice department first get wise to this. >> the interesting facet of this. essentially the families of many of the young men came forward to ask that the f.b.i. help in finding them. you know, many of these older relatives of the young men were concerned that this was going on. they had inklings but no concrete facts to base that on. they came to f.b.i. asking for help to find their sons. >> warner: these young men had just disappeared. >> in many cases, yes, they had essentially packed up and gone and the family feared the worst. >> warner: has it been absolutelyly established that as the charges lay out that some of these young men at least have shown up in somalia, they have gone to terrorist training camps? they have even engaged in combat? >> yes, there is one partic

[laughter] and the use of the word robust. could you talk about those a little bit? >> guest: it's interesting that you've noticed those because i don't think i did that deliberately, but on ecosystem, it's an important concept because there are so many different pieces of this communication landscape, our communications infrastructure. take our networks, our kind of wired networks over which communications travel or our wireless networks too. we need ongoing investment in those networks, we need those networks to get more robust, we need them to get smarter. there's been literally billions of dollars of private investment in those networks over the last number of years. that is essential, and it's es
into power. the united states and the west were making loans to the soviet union. new numbers were coming out as to how much money they were borrowing. it was very boring in a very dry study -- and a very dry study. as i was doing that, i wondered why it was that defense spending was costing u.s. taxpayers so much money and then we turn around with our nato partners and make loans to the soviet economy. it all became a policy issue. this paper turned into a book with a very sensationalist title, called "the coming soviet crash" that said that on paper, this country is going bankrupt. that got me involved in defense issues. it got interesting. what i remember seeing you give a speech on this network back in 1989. what i thought it would be useful to take a few minutes too late things out the way gorbachev must be looking at them >> i thought it would be useful to take a few minutes -- >> i thought it would be useful to take a few minutes too late things out to a gorbachev must be looking at them. >> we were doing the book show and we ask you to come on. we visited for one hour -- we ask you to

% in the united states and much less than that around the world can clearly sustain a higher price level for stocks from here. >> burt, what about the fact we're jamming $100 billion of treasuries into the market week after week? at what point the market, the global buyer and the uptick, the take-up rate does people just say, no mas? >> yeah, you know that is a problem. but i will say this, the stimulus for around the world, especially china, their recovery package is to get the united states fixed because if they get united states fixed we buy their stuff again. i think the world is going to continue to absorb these and they're going to do so largely because it helps us out. at the end of the day they know if they don't step up to the plate and buy these the end consumer in the united states, which is the global spender, is going to end up being weaker than what they want. attend of the day, the stem louse and the recovery of china and the rest of the world is to really bail us out and the way they bail us out is to buy our treasuries. >> john, by any measure a subpar recovery as far as
a certain tree before someone else knows. >> of like the united states congress. let me ask you a question to reedbuck on the minds of millions of americans. right now we are in the most serious economic decline since the great depression. if you add that the number of people who are unemployed and underemployed 17% of american adults were forced is in that position . the first question, nobody could have predicted this. how do you responsd? >> it was absolutely predictable for a lot of reasons. that mentality in the street. the reason the crisis happened was there was a desire to find products and to create access within wall street that made money. they don't really care. it doesn't matter to wall street firms what those are. it turned out that they created assets out of a small amount of sub prime loans. when i say a small amount, i look at it like it's an upside-down pyramid. 1.4 trillion were issued in. what wall street does is takes them and creates new securities not even trading them back and forth. just the creation of the securities. and then what they do is take the securities.
, there are members of the congress who sent a letter to the president of the united states back in april request agameting to sit down for the very purposes of doing what you just described. you know, being at the table and talking about health care. they're still waiting for the meeting. the senate and house leadership staffs weren't a part of those late-night meetings that took place for the very bill that was voted on. all this dog and pony show with grassley is nice theater but the staff, senior staff and leadership of the party have not been at the table and it's not been a bipartisan process and over 800 amendments on the house bill alone were rejected. so, you mean to tell me out of 800 ideas put on the table, not one of them could be put in the bill? this is the frustration that a lot of people have with this process, not to mention the fact that we were told this was all going to be transparent and it hasn't been. >> well, i grant you all your arguments and all your points about the way the house operates because the house has different rules and, as you know, they certainly were not wo
think? >> i don't think they'll be taken down by regulators. if we take a look at yus the united states in general and our water infrastructure, most of the pipes in the ground are 80 years old or more. so when a pipe breaks, you have to fix it. and i just don't see regulators pushing back against profit margins on companies when the infrastructure investments are necessary. >> debra, what does a stat like that mean? when we say demand is going to exceed supply by 40% it makes it sound like everybody's going to die. where is there not going to be water? tell us what ma means. >> if you take a closer look at that report basically it means water is being used inefficiently. what the report says is that if we keep on the way that we're wasting water that we'll run out. agriculture overuses water. industry overuses water. residents, particularly in america, over use water. it's really about water efficiency. if we use the water that we have more efficiently, nobody's going to die. what that does mean is that people are going to have to pay more for less water use. and that's something that
plants have been initiated in the united states. linsey davis, abc news, new york. >>> a maryland soldier who was among the victims at this month's fort hood massacre cast laid to rest today. lieutenant colonel juanita warman of havre de grace was a military physician assistant. she helped service members cope with the mental strain of deployment. warman was at fort hood to get ready for deployment to iraq. she had worked at the perry point veterans medical affairs medical center in maryland. she was buried this afternoon at arlington national cemetery. >>> for a look at tonight's top stories. jurors in the theft trial of baltimore mayor sheila dixon have deliberated for three days but there is still no verdict. the jury sent a note to the judge today saying they are making great progress after a weekend away from the case. but they went home again tonight without reaching a verdict. the mayor is accused of using gift cards intended for the needy on personal shopping sprees. if convicted she faces removal from office. >>> a man remains hospitalized tonight after a shootout with police but
a pocket. this case you cited in the united states, resistant to the antiviral drugs. what the cdc is saying, a couple of clusters of, we're watching it, but in no way are we suddenly watching this crazy mutated virus that's sweeping the world. just two pockets we're keeping our eyes on. >> distribution not up to what the cdc would hope, but 54 million doses shipped as of this week. numbers aren't that great yet. >> no, it's been a pokey, slow process for getting this vaccine out. nowhere near the numbers we want. nonetheless, about 10 million new viral -- or vaccine doses available every week. what you really have to do is just keep on the phone lines, go to google, go to the flu.gov and see where there is vaccine near you. here's what people have to remember though. still get your h1n1 when you can, when it comes near you, and then get ready, because the seasonal flu hasn't hit yet. that's going to be later this fall. >> don't forget to get that shot. >> that is available everywhere. >> right now this vaccine is still being directed at those most vulnerable. high-risk. someone li
that we funded in over $120 affiliates in the united states alone. people who would never had have the opportunity to have care. or screening. you know, we spent over 2.2 trillion every year on health care in the united states. surely we can cover 23 million women. it's a tiny fraction of $2.2 trillion. i'd also like to say that any insurance company that is thinking right now that this report should be used as a way to reduce coverage will be watching very carefully. we'll be watching. so access, clarity, and public trust are critical. but so to is perhaps the center piece of what it is we are having the most trouble with. that's technology. in a strange way, all of the dust up from the past week actually may do some good. maybe it's a call. finally. we know mammography works. but we also know it's imperfect. we do need better screening technology. this technology that we're using today, though it's been improved and regenerated is still almost 50 years ago. what other business or field that we know in the united states around the world would use 50-year-old technology. this is a
the weekend. not just a hit in the united states, pulling in $259 million worldwide this weekend. >>> the looming expiration of the first time home buyer tax credit helping 40e78 sales soar to the highest in two and a half years. diana? >> reporter: maria, the question, of course, is just how much did the pending expiration of that tax credit which was later extended, the answer is likely a lot. existing home sales posted two records, biggest month-to-month and biggest year-to-year jumps sales were strong across the nation with the exception of the west up just 1.6%. another good sign is that inventories fell to their lowest level in 2 1/2 years, and if you go local to the west, where prices have fallen the most and sales have been busy for quite some time, there is very little supply available. >> interestingly, what i hear from las vegas, san diego, riverside, and other areas, is that they are really desperate for inventory op the lower price range. they're saying there's just insufficient inventory on the lower price range, even though they have buyers to buy, there's not enou
the united states safer and our troops are fighting people that were not fighting us for any, any ideological or reasons or any ties, or real ties toward the taliban or hatred of the west. the reaction i received trt state department was completely professional, it -- e i've actually received encouragement from the members of the state department and the members of the intelligent community and the members of the department of defense. i made people agree with me, but overall, even the folks that don't agree with me have been the -- they were nothing but professional and respectful for the last few months. >> we have seen your name in newspapers and the cable shows, you're a graduate of tufts university. share your background. >> sure, i graduated tufts in 1995 and i went to work for a couple of years after that, working in finance and publishing companies in boston and massachusetts and -- and basically was bored and so became an officer in the marine corps and became a combat engineer officer and was stationed throughout the united states as well as japan, including time in the pentagon. i
on the soviet union. gorbachev had just come into power in 1985. the united states and the west were suddenly making loans to the soviet union. new numbers were coming out about how much they were borrowing from the west. and i proposed to do a very boring, very dry study of the impact of western capital on the soviet economy. but as i was doing that, i started thinking, why is it that defense spending is costing u.s. taxpayers so much money, and then we're turning around with our nato partners and making loans to this soviet economy, and supplying goods that they might otherwise have to divert their own resources to making, instead of building nuclear weapons, against which we were paying a bundle to defend ourselves? so, it all became sort of a policy issue. and so, i ended up -- this paper turned into a book with a very sensationalist title, called "the coming soviet crash," that said, on paper, this country is going bankrupt. and then there were implications from that that even got me involved in defense issues. so, it got interesting. >> i remember seeing you give a speech on this networ
